NOTE: Crawfordsville's Masonic Cemetery was founded in 1866 on South Grant avenue and was acquired by Oak Hill Cemetery in 1997. Those papers that Oak Hill did not want were given to the Crawfordsville District Public Library in 2002. although this collection was weather damaged and incomplete, papers saved from this donation include burial permits, cash receipts, foundation orders, miscellaneous papers (including some out of state permits and certificates), and correspondence. These papers have been abstracted for this index.
